MANSFIELD, OH - A Mansfield man spent over a year playing fair games and claw machines to win over 100 stuffed animals and toys for his girlfriend before deciding to donate the entire lot of toys to Akron Children's Hospital.

Matt Dixon and his girlfriend, Jillian Query, have been dating for fifteen months as of August. One day at the fair he won a stuffed dog for her and then promised to win 100 more. He went above and beyond and actually won 106 by playing claw machines at local groceries and restaurants. Along the way, he and Query decided to donate the animals to kids in need instead.

"We figured we'd pay it forward," Dixon said, "We feel bad for them and we pray for them always."

The donation will be happily received by the hospital soon, but in the meantime, Dixon had another fun surprise planned. Watch the video above to find out.
